Alongside being the top dentist in Dublin, at Green Dental we also offer safe and reliable aesthetic treatments. After any form of aesthetic procedure — whether that’s dermal fillers or a chemical peel — it’s essential to know how to care for your rejuvenated complexion at home. We’re pleased to be an authorised retailer of SkinCeuticals. And using this professional-level skincare range is a fantastic way to keep your skin looking radiant after injectable treatments.
But what’s the best way to integrate SkinCeuticals homecare products into your daily routine after injectable treatments?
Why is homecare so important after an aesthetics procedure?
It’s important to note that injectable treatments are not permanent. However, by using effective home care products created by experts, you can get longer-lasting, more comprehensive results from your clinical procedure. Post-injectable treatments can help speed up recovery times, reduce discomfort, and prolong the desired results.
SkinCeuticals post-injectable treatment
The SkinCeuticals Professional Homecare Routine 2 is a post-injectable treatment designed to keep your skin hydrated, firm, and radiant after injectable procedures such as fillers, Profhilo, Botox, or skinboosters.
This bundle of products includes:
This plumps and smooths your skin, amplifying your natural levels of hyaluronic acid. You can use it after your injectable treatment and alongside retinol creams.
Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2
This anti-ageing cream hydrates and nourishes, improving your pore appearance and skin texture. You can also use it alongside retinol.
Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50+
The final item in the bundle is a sunscreen to use post-treatment. It protects against UV rays and helps even out your skin tone.
Retinol is a fantastic anti-ageing ingredient. Derived from vitamin A, retinol gets deep into the dermis level of your skin and boosts the production of collagen, creating a plumping effect that:
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Smooths the complexion
- Reduces pores
A common question is whether or not it’s safe to use retinol creams alongside hyaluronic acid. Fortunately, you can use both ingredients together — just aim to apply retinol before the hyaluronic acid.
You should only use retinol at night, as it can cause sun sensitivity. It’s also best used in conjunction with a vitamin C product and sunscreen during the daytime, as it helps neutralise free radicals and gives full protection to the skin.
Creating a 5-step routine
If you’re looking for a way to integrate the SkinCeuticals post-injectable treatment with retinol cream and additional homecare products, read on for an effective skincare regime.
1. Cleanse and tone
The first step in any good skincare routine, morning and night, is to cleanse and tone to remove any impurities, make-up, and dirt. The SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser is a great option for sensitive skin, while the brand’s Blemish + Age Cleanser is ideal if you’re prone to blemishes.
For toning, try the Equalizing Toner to balance and refresh your complexion, and to restore your skin’s protective PH barrier.
2. Plump and boost
Next up, dab 4-6 drops of your H.A. Intensifier onto your forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. Gently blend it in. You can use the H.A. Intensifier in the morning and at night.
3. Correct any previous damage
If you’re using a retinol cream at night, apply this before using your H.A. Intensifier.
Follow your retinol cream with a small amount of Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2.
5. Protect your smooth, radiant skin
You can apply your Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50+ to your face, neck, and chest in the morning to protect your complexion throughout the day.
